The Permanent Mission of the Kyrgyz Republic to the United Nations together with the Missions of Austria and Peru to the United Nations held an event dedicated to the International Mountain Day


The Permanent Mission of the Kyrgyz Republic to the United Nations together with the Missions of Austria and Peru to the United Nations held an event dedicated to the International Mountain Day. The event took place on December 11, 2017 at the United Nations headquarters. The meeting was attended by UN member countries, representatives of international institutions and academia.

The Permanent Representative of Kyrgyzstan, M.Moldoisaeva, in her speech noted that for many years Kyrgyzstan has paid great attention to the international mountain issues and initiated the promotion of the initiative in the United Nations General Assembly to declare the International Year of Mountains in 2002. The Bishkek Mountain Summit held in the same year and its final document laid the foundation for the UN General Assembly resolution, which proclaimed December 11 as the International Mountain Day.

The Permanent Representative noted that over the past fifteen years, attention to mountain ecosystems and peoples are significantly increased in the world. Moreover, today the mountain problem is part of our universal Agenda for Sustainable Development until 2030 and other global documents. At the same time, despite the progress, problems remain. Mountain areas are still threatened by climate change and food insecurity. In particular, increases in temperature have resulted in the melting and disappearance of more than 1000 small and medium-sized glaciers in the mountains of Central Asia. Therefore, we face with an increase of natural disasters such as droughts, floods and landslides. Climate change, poverty and poaching all exact a heavy toll on mountain biodiversity and half of the world’s biodiversity hotspots are concentrated in mountains.

In this context, the Permanent Representative informed about the national policy, and in particular about the Taza-Kooh project focusing on the digital transformation of the country. Responding to the principles of green economy and sustainable development, this project will create unhindered access to knowledge, information and telecommunication technologies required for sustainable development, particularly in remote mountain areas. Attention was also drawn to the initiated and hosted by Kyrgyzstan two high-level International Snow Leopard and Ecosystem Forums. M.Moldoisaeva noted that more than just a beautiful, endangered animal, the snow leopard is an icon and an indicator of the health of Asia’s mountain ecosystems. To preserve it all countries need to embrace a whole set of Sustainable Development Goals.

Delegations from Austria, Peru, Bhutan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Nepal, FAO, etc. also spoke at the event. Some deletions underline the leadership of Kyrgyzstan in the issues of promotion of the problems of mountain countries on the UN margins and expressed the hope that this dialogue will be continued.
